influence, again, i think i jump on the phrase that john had, which is he said we don't exercise authority, if we ever actually did. i think the question is, of course, we never actually did. we started the cold war dealing with a soviet union that wielded a certain amount of influence. troops controlled half of europe. i think our sagse situation is unquestionably better now than it was did you during that period, in terms of wielding overall influence. i think the real way to look at this, because john also talked about that, is whether i measure american success and american influence, i measure it against the capacity to uphold a certain kind of world order which the united states has upheld for many decades forward second world war. a lot of the changes that people focus on don't affect that world order. the rise of brazil, the rise of india, just like germany and japan, don't count against that world order nor against the united states and its ability to influence things sms our goal is to create a world order where we don't have to have as much effort in terms of getting other peopl

was winning independent voters by 13 points. and, in 2008 he defeated john mccain by 8% with independent smacks so with the admonition of less -- let's wait until the dust has settled and see the polls in the next couple of days i'm going to be looking at the numbers in the other thing very quickly in terms of the minority vote. the other thing about barack obama's election in 2008 was the one something on the order of 43% of the white vote and in most of the national polls that is kind of where he is so that will be another number to look out for. the country is changing and in 2008, three-quarters of the electorate was white which was down from the mid-to high 80s 20 years ago and that number is going to change. and the question is in a very close election i don't think anyone thought it would get seven-point race. i think they thought it would be a two or three-point race. the metrics are there for him to win. speak to me, and i'm sorry to interrupt but to me i wanted to -- to meet the most stunning numbers from 2008, if you take out the 29-year-olds and look at the 30 plus mccain and
be facing our economy right now. christine stay right where you are. i want to bring in john king who has been a debate moderator in the past as well as sam nunn, a senator from georgia. he's actively working with both alan simpson and erskine bowles to find sensible solutions to the current gridlock. think of this as simpson-bowles 2.0. senator nunn has been highly critical of both republicans and democrats over their handling of the fiscal cliff that threatens our economy. senator nunn you said both sides steam have a political strategy but their governing strategy is in doubt. those are your words. have you ever seen america so broken that lawmakers would rather take the economy to the brink. why are we richinging this? why are rerisking people's decisions whether to employ somebody. >> it's a very dangerous game of chicken going on and i think that game needs to be changed and even changed quickly. the lame duck session can do that. what i would like to see is instead of kicking the can down the road and kicking the cliff down the road with this same draconian solution if we don't rea
becoming more polarized and more centered on the left and right. mccainearly 2000's, john carry 20% of the republican senate caucus formication/fine gold. it happened in the house because moderate republicans voted for it against their party leadership. those senators who voted for mccain- feingold are gone. the party has moved on and the ball. the ball. but there the 1990's were perennial discussions about changing the campaign of finance. it took place in the world or someone like the republican leader was interested in making sure each of the republicans got a good deal or not a bad deal but he is not opposed to reform or legislation. this is partially or largely because we have an fcc that is deadlocked at 3-3 because it takes four votes. that is a 2/3 requirement for the fcc to do anything. it is now as a prize of they don't. i think there really is a change in the way congress looks at this in a non-partisan way. i still hold out hope that after the election in the new congress that will at least take care of this of this closure. -- of this disclosure. they say the disclosu

john ready to go, she looks the part. she already had been very outspoken and even sassy and her responses to them and so they finally sent her. and so it was about february of 1429 when they decided to outfit her for war, april 29 they sent her to arnelle. she had been chomping at the bit in people who saw her said she was like a woman in labor waiting to have a baby. she wanted to get to war and i think that is one of the dominant characteristics of joan, she loved warfare. she is not this crying st.. she's a woman who is full of action, full of self-confidence and really wants to do what all of the king's men had not been able to do before this and that was, they were so chivalrous. they were giving gifts to the english and so forth. joan wanted to be english and i think she had a vision that was very far ahead of its time in the sense that she imagined a fence that wasn't just factions fighting amongst themselves but there was one france so it doesn't happen in her lifetime but i think she starts creating that idea. so she phot basij eau gallie on was lifted in the week after
